taking a temporary hiatus

I need to decompress. The internet pisses me off lately more than it helps. And it’s seemingly just another useless distraction from the more productive shit I could be doing. Take care folks. Don’t take yourselves too seriously and don’t let anyone treat you like shit. Most importantly, don’t treat yourself like shit. Because contrary to what you may believe, you are not shit. We are all capable of greatness. A little bit at a time.

Ciao

Budget Witchery ☽○☾  by a sweet/or not ;) old crown After unpacking the car today I started placing everything on the kitchen table. I looked over the mass of plastic and paper bags holding my new treasures and started to think about back when my children were young. There were many times “excuse my language” we didn’t have a pot to piss in, never mind the thought of spending money on a rock or some other shiney object. Now don’t get me wrong, I think it is pretty obvious I do love my shiney treasures, but the truth is, your magick doesn’t come from what your wallet allows you purchase. Yes, there are some tools that will make your spell work a little easier, but no one says they have to be bought. You need a Cauldron…use an old pot. A tool of the Element of Water. You need an Incense burner/Censer…before I would have said use an ashtray, but recently had one crack on me even with sand in it. A medium size flat or scooped out shaped stone works very good. A tool of the Element of Air. You need an Anthame…an old letter opener or any knife will do. A tool of the Elements of Fire or Air. You need a Chalice…use a Wine glass or any cup. A tool of the Element of Water. You need a Wand or Staff…take a walk and find a stick that appeals to you and make one. A tool of the Elements of Fire or Air. You need a Pentacle…Draw one in the sand, on a piece of paper or even arrange pebbles to make one. A tool of the Element of Earth. You need a Besom…any broom that appeals to you is fine. A tool to sweep away negativity. You need a Bell…shop the dollar stores. A tool of invocation. You need Candles…watch for sale coupons, shop dollar & thrift stores. Use birthday candles or melt down old candle pieces (not used in spells) and make your own. You need a certain stone…a clear quartz crystal can substitute any stone. Actually, any stone that appeals to you can be charge to do your workings. You need an Altar…any flat surface indoor or outside can be made into an Altar. You need an Altar cloth…any piece of fabric will do as long as it appeals to you. You need an image of your Goddess or God…search the internet for an image you can print off.  You need Charcoal discs…set aside broken pieces of regular charcoal before you have your next cookout. You need a certain Anointing oil…Olive oil can be substituted. You need a Book of Shadows…any notebook or place you can keep your notes is fine as long as it works for you. You can’t burn Incense or Smug sticks…instead of burning, add your herbs or incense to boiled water to make a tea. Use the steam in place of the smoke. If you have respiratory problems, you may still have difficulty with this substitution. The point is, in your everyday magickal use, you can be creative and use your craft to fit your needs and your budget.  If anyone tells you that you have to purchase a certain item is not helping you and your craft, they are helping themselves to your money. The magick isn’t in your tools. It is within you. ☽○☾

Things To Remember

wittyandcharming:

  • Don’t be angry at yourself when anxiety/depression flares up. It isn’t your fault and no one blames you and if they do they’re pieces of shit.
  • Don’t orbit around your perceived value so much. You’re not the sum total of what you produce.
  • Don’t let yourself wonder why people love you. That’s not how it works. There are not stark, individual reasons that a person can enumerate about why they love you. It’s the entire, unique combination of what and who you are.

Message.

This is not directed to anyone in particular

just a random thought. It goes like this…

If you’re going through difficult circumstances and you project that on other people or rather make others aware of your suffering and someone offers to help and you accept it, DO NOT throw it back in their face. Do NOT treat them like shit. Otherwise, you probably deserve whatever it is you’re dealing with. The world is too overcrowded with shitty fucking people polluting the goddamn gene pool as it is. No one needs your ungrateful bullshit when their hardwork and kind-hearted energy could be going to someone who actually deserves it. Odds are, the person extending a hand knows a lot about suffering and it hurts them to see this in the hearts of others. Even if they can’t fully understand, NO MATTER WHAT it is, they tried when most likely no one else did. Fucking. Remember this. I repeat. DO NOT be a piece of shit. Unless you would like your name to be smeared as such for the rest of your living memory. That is all.
